Abstract:
In a context of uncertainty about the risks, and with an increasing number of potentially exposed workers, this report paints a big picture of the OHS knowledge currently available in the NP field. In the absence of specific standards, a preventive and even a precautionary approach are recommended, and a review of the available means for minimizing worker exposure is presented. The needs for developing new knowledge are enormous and the authors propose some avenues of research that they feel are a priority in the current Quebec context.
